The Top Ten

1
Transformers
Trashing huge robot trucks has gotta be worth SOMETHING! I can't wait for transFARMERS (from Corner Gas)

Oreanta

It is good really awesome film. Unlike Oreanta a disliker a Justin Bieber fan. Perhaps this movie is better than jurassic park that I'm sick of its grapihcs!
Nothing can match this movie particularly dark of the moon.
Just got pissed in the driller scenes

2Jurassic Park
Yes, Transformers may have awesome and stylish visuals, but what about the film that made these elements strong enough to inspire movies like Titanic, Lord of the Rings, Avatar, The Star Wars Prequels E.T.C.

In my personal opinion, Jurassic Park will remain the father of recent special effects and I'm glad Steven Spielberg made it possible. Also, it gave us a more realistic approach of dinosaurs and the result was terrifying and breathtaking.

After 65 Millon Years they were back

MatrixGuy

I could believe they were real dionsaurs! Stan winston and Dennis Muren do their job perfect!

3Avatar
None of the Tranformers movies have even won an Academy award for best visual effects. How is it number one? I would believe the consensus would make this movie. It is stunningly beautiful and a lot better than Tranformers.


James cameron sacrificed so much for this movie! And it came out good!
Visual effects, Great Storyline & massive Gross Revenue, what more could you want!
James Cameron has done it again

5Star Wars

Hey, ever heard of ILM? It stands for Industrial light and magic and has done special effects to almost all big movies released after Star Wars, including harry potter, jurassic park, indiana jones, pirates of the caribbean, avatar and hundreds others. Just name a movie, theyve done it! Without star wars special effects as we know it wouldn't exist! Think about it!


6Terminator 2: Judgment Day
this piece of excellency and shear of what hollywood is
made in 1991 best before the world knew whats special and visual effects

shawnsoscar

This should be number 1. Because in 1991 is not technological days. It shows how hard to try make this movie...
This movie set a new standard of visual graphics for the movie industry. In 1991 these were top notch and can even compete in 2014!

7Titanic
We can't imagine how hard was record this movie. They didn't have ship or ocean or anything, but they recorded one of the greatest movies ever!

TitanicDiaries

I just LOVE titanic. EOS.
